The curriculum in Applied Statistics is structured to allow students to be employed in areas requiring the tools of discrete mathematics and statistics. The advent of high-speed computers and technological advances being made in this area has encouraged the development of, and has resulted in, important advances that constitute significant statistical tools for such areas as the life sciences, administrative/managerial sciences and the social/behavioral sciences.
Graduates who earn a BS in Applied Statistics will be able to:
Demonstrate analytic, critical reasoning, and problem solving skills.
Collect and analyze data and summarize results precisely.
Demonstrate basic knowledge of statistics.
Apply statistical modeling to real-world problems.
Communicate statistical knowledge orally and in writing.
Demonstrate basic knowledge of computational procedures and use of statistical packages.
The degree requires a minimum of 120 semester credit hours. Students must have a grade of C or better in any course in computer science, mathematics or statistics that is applied towards the degree.
Common Core Requirements (42 hours)
See the Common Core Requirements section of the catalog for Undergraduate Academic Programs. Observe that MATH 2405 satisfies both the mathematics requirement of the Common Core and a mathematics requirement for the applied statistics degree plan.
